You Get Bad PR With Poor Leadership

By Harry Kelber | The Labor Reform Movement | June 23, 2012

What we should have learned from the Wisconsin defeat is that the AFL-CIO does not project a favorable image to the public and that its appeal to the voters needs to be reformed.

Among the millions of unorganized workers, there must be huge numbers who would like the protection of a union, but object to the AFL-CIO, because it does not allow honest elections, tolerates corruption and is silent on the issue of worker rights.

To help workers around the country who are suffering from a variety of problems, from unemployment and lack of health care to wage cuts, layoffs and reduced retirement income, we are setting up a self-starting organization that we are calling AFL-CIO Reformers.

Every unionist is invited to be a member of AFL-CIO Reformers.
